(CLACKAMAS, Ore.) - Clackamas County officials say today around 2:00 a.m. an intuitive mother detected that a suspected "Peeping Tom" had returned to her residence – once again – to peer into her 14-year-old daughter's bedroom window.

Det. Jim Strovink with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, says the woman first alerted her husband and the next door neighbor, who soon discovered the suspect in the act.

"The suspect physically resisted the efforts of these citizen's to detain him while deputy sheriff's responded to the call," Strovink said. "The Clackamas County Sheriff's were alerted to the scene and conducted their criminal investigation; which, resulted in the arrest of Paul Cameron Klick, age 43; who resides at 24475 SE Strawberry Drive, in Damascus."

Strovink says as a result of this suspect's effort to resist being detained, a victim in this case received minor injuries to his knee, elbow and nose. Medical responded to the scene and evaluated these victim injuries. It is anticipated the victim will be seeking further medical assistance later in the day.

Clackamas County Sheriff's Patrol personnel state as result of this initial, ongoing investigation, have obtained and retained items of evidence from the home of Paul Klink.

Investigators report this invasion of privacy has been suspected by the victim to have occurred at, or near this residence, for more than a year. Other neighbors were detecting suspicious activity as well and investigators have learned Paul Klick may have been engaging in this type of behavior for as long as ten-years.

This particular crime is a misdemeanor (ORS163.700). Klink has been cited to appear for this charge in the Clackamas County Circuit Court, on August 8th, 2009 at 3:00 p.m.

Why aren't these perverted types of crimes given more merit and penalty?
